Five men and one young adult venture out into the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their mission - to summit Middle Palisade at 14,000 feet above sea level.
We entered through Big Pine, California where we hiked up to Brainerd Lake, our campsite for three nights. It was more than beautiful, something you truly have to see to believe. On day three we woke up before the crack of dawn, threw on our day packs and headed up to Middle Palisade, guiding every footstep after the previous with our headlamps. Once the sun finally rose we were hiking over Middle Palisade Glacier, cramp-ons attached and ice axe in hand.
It was an epic trip with some epic scenery. This video doesn't do justice to how surreal it is being on a mountain. Or hiking over a glacier. Or eating meat flavored lasagna from a bag. I would recommend it to anyone.
Hope you enjoy.
